Congratulations to MIT senior Emily Damato, who won the “Audience Choice Award” at the April 26 SuperUROP poster session, with her poster “Applications of Machine Learning for Cryo-EM.”   Emily has been part of the Drennan lab for two years, this past year as a SuperUROP.  Her mentor in the lab, Ed Brignole, who now heads up MIT’s Cryo-EM facility, says “Emily’s work will certainly have an impact on how we process Cryo-EM data.”

Emily graduates next month with a BSc in Computer Science and Molecular Biology, a degree program offered jointly by EECS and the Department of Biology.  Following graduation, she will start a job at Grail.
